Nice :) My only remaining suggestion was going to be to check that you are not trying to mine at a fixed difficulty that is too high. Ran into a situation like that today on another pool. Dropped difficulty for worker, restarted mining software (BFGminer), and now hashing away!!!
so i may have got it going, yay ! just got to connect some wires and do a few test run, and if it works it would be because of you alls helps.
so i just wanted to say thank you to everyone who helped and replied to this.
You can't really have too much power as each device will draw just the current it needs. You can however have too little. Small PSU manufacturers tend to overate their product in terms of Watts by multiplying full load current by off load voltage (or somewhere in-between). Problem then is that when you push to the rated wattage, you get voltage drop (regulation problems) and an overheated power supply. Better to have some wiggle room. Having said that, PSU's (just like inverters and generators) are most efficient at max load. Be cautious with ATX supplies. It is easy to overdraw the 12V rail current without exceeding the stated wattage, and not without the supply popping a component and 'letting the smoke out' - shouldn't be an issue with what you are running though.
Not sure about the fan necessity on the blade unit. My fan is running, and no detectable heat or warmth coming out the other end. I didn't know there was a red unit!
i will give your bfgminer .bat setup a try and see if it works plus with all the gsd .bat settings bfgminer dose not detect my device . i will also try tweeking the feq. to see if that may help also. no my .bats are good when it come to the basic info and the gridseed settings.
i was thinking of turnimg a 475w cpu psu into a psu for my gridseeds but i think it would be too much power for just two orbs and on blade 80 chips ( x2 40 chip boards). the orbs 5chips dont really need that much power and running one of the two blade boards shouldn't take that much power either .
dose it need the fan to run ? i know the orbs can run with no fan but can the blades ?
what is the difference between the black 40 chip gridseed blade and the red 40 chip gridseedblade ? they are both the same miners but the only difference that i see is the color. i think the chips my be different also but i am not sure. there red ones has the same chips as the orbs ( dual btc/ltc gc3355 chip set)
Hmmmm...? How about your hashing frequency in the .bat file? I tried 900 and it did not start hashing at all when I reconnected to Litecoinpool.org. Here is the default .bat from BFG miner 3.10.0 for the Gridseed blade...
...so I'm currently running at 800. Try 750 or even 700 and see what happens. Other than that, you might have a faulty unit.
Another thought --- It's possible 90W might not be enough power, or on the borderline of not enough. I am running on a 735W ATX power supply, Raidmax Thunder V2 (Gridseed Blade plus four Gridseed Orbs)
Another other thought --- URL, port, worker name, and password all good?
Is your power supply up to the job? You need about 5A per hashing board.
Did you try re-installing the USB drivers? When you unplug / reconnect the USB cables, you should see a message about STMicroelectronics Virtual com port ready to use.
i have that cgminer already plus i redownloaded it didnt work maybe if i try it on my otehr computer it may work but im not sure it will. i dont have a fan but that should not be the issuse and if it is is there a .bat conf that can exclude the fan?
what is the pause for i dont not use that when i run my 5 chip miners?
our setteing and miners are the same basically but i cant seem to get mine working. everything works excpet its not mining . i had this happen on my mini but it kinda just fixed its self .
maybe if someone can make a . conf i can look at maybe i can compair it to one i make and see what i am doing wrong
i use this miner and has worked well for a couple years
i use this bat line
cgminer.exe --scrypt -o stratum+tcp://mineshaft1.cryptopia.co.nz:1000 -u shotgun -p x --gridseed-options=baud=115200,freq=750,chips=40 --hotplug 5pause
you will need the zandig driver for the winusb
